Course summary

This course prepares you to become a registered diagnostic radiographer. You’ll study for an honours degree and meet statutory requirements to gain a professionally recognised qualification. As a diagnostic radiographer you’ll play a key role in medical teams taking high-quality imaging to help diagnose and monitor illness or injuries to enable patients to receive the right treatment. You’ll develop the technical skills and knowledge to meet statutory requirements, and the caring skills needed for a successful career. Around 50% of your course will be spent gaining experience on placement. A career in diagnostic radiography is both challenging and rewarding. There is high demand for qualified practitioners across the healthcare sector, including in hospitals, community and private settings. The course team includes experienced radiographers. You’ll also benefit from visiting lecturers from collaborating healthcare organisations. The focus on interdisciplinary learning across all our health courses enriches your experience while also preparing you for the reality of professional practice. The recognition that patients come first in everything the NHS does, and the values of the NHS constitution – respect, dignity, compassion and working together for patients – are embedded in our curriculum.
